THE gunman who shot dead a police worker in Sydney was a 15-year-old boy of Iraqi-Kurdish background who was born in Iran and his actions were linked to terrorism, police say.
“We believe that his actions were politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism,” NSW Police Commissioner, Andrew Scipione told reporters in Sydney
The teenager, a naturalised Australian who arrived with his family from Iran, had walked to the police headquarters in Charles Street from his home in North Parramatta before opening fire on a civilian police employee, who has been identified as Curtis Cheng.
Islamist inspired terrorist attacks are becoming a regular event in Australia. I hope I’m wrong, but it is probably just a matter of time until we get them here.
